Atheist Victory? Supreme Court Refuses to Hear War Memorial Cross Case

"...the government has no business playing favorites with religion..."

SAN DIEGO (The Blaze/AP) -- The Supreme Court won't get involved in a fight over whether a 29-foot war memorial cross can remain on public land overlooking the Pacific Ocean in San Diego, with justices refusing Monday to review an appeals court ruling that deemed the Mount Soledad cross an unconstitutional mixing of government and religion.

It was in 2011 that the Blaze first told you about a controversial cross atop the Mt. Soledad War Memorial in San Diego, Calif. As we reported, the religious symbol was deemed unconstitutional by the the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. But, supporters, led by the non-profit, conservative legal firm, Liberty Institute, appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to save what they see as an important memorial that commemorates U.S. soldiers -- a fight that was lost today when the court refused to hear the case.
